    Well, it's been a while since I was on here, but it's great to be back.

    Oh I do have to laugh about your comment about not being on here.... I have been on almost every day since I started... and collected the Bread Baking book, Pig book, cattle book, Donkey & Chicken books for presents for friends, .... and little citty sticky notes and a book about raining cats & dogs... between this site, Hobby Farm.com, Dog channel & Cat channel.... points are not hard if you just log on and do the ecard, post a comment, and take a quiz. LOL

    We have actually taken quite a route with the name...we originally had alpacas and no property...."Wall 2 Wall Alpaca" then we were Wall 2 Wall Alpacas & Sheep" The we left the alpacas and got goats (for a very short time) ... now we have sold the sheep and only have the Border Collies and 2 dairy cows and 2 calves... and 4 kitties... 2 LGD Akbash dogs and 4 Border Collies.... not much farm left but we still eat well.... oh and in the summer every so often my hubby will raise a couple piglets for butcher.... No Chickens though... Hubby will not have a chicken on the yard! LOL and I love eggs! But we do enjoy all our own meat... milk, cream & butter....

    Congratulations on being farmer of the day. How did the cat do with picking out the seeds?

    I posted a picture of some little peppers that look like baby bell peppers, but they're HOT! Does anyone know what they are?
